We actually ended up with six!

Obika, Jakubiak, Morias, Cooke, Mullen and Chabbi.

Obika and Morias are all that's left and given Goodwin enjoyed going with 2 up quite a lot last season, I'd be hopeful of Jakubiak returning to the club and another forward option.

Please note we were the lowest scorers in the league last season, by a few goals, however we stayed up due to a meaner defence.

We need to freshen up the front line with someone who can get 12 + goals a season and keep Obika. I would have liked Cooke to have made it, and I know he had a bad injury, but I'm just not sure he has the ability to step up and really worry defences in this league. 

I go with the argument that you need probably at least 5 strikers (a) to cover for injuries and (b) to freshen things up if anyone isn't making the grade.

Shame we didn't hang onto Ross Stewart rather than sell him to Ross County. He's proved he can score goals at this level.

Of all the stupid things that Stubbs did in his less than 3 months in charge the sale of Ross Stewart to Ross County was by far the stupidest and frankly amateurish decision he made.  It's now wonder that JR, who brought him to us, is now trying to lure him to Hibs (if they can find the money obviously).

According to newspaper reports in the last couple of months, Naismith wants a permanent move back to Easter Rd.

He was doing some running on his own down at Ferguslie CC this afternoon.

Stewart proved at County that he is one of the major cheating diving cnuts in Scottish Football.

We dinnae need his fecking sort at St Mirren Park. We are well rid of that fud.

FECKEM !!!

Morias gives the impression that he tries too hard.

If JG can get him to relax a bit there might still be a future for him here.

Afraid I disagree. I don't think Morais is good enough. We need to get at least one more decent striker in to play alongside Obika.

Not overly convinced on the Mitchell Rose signing either if it happens.

Please note that in the early part of the season, Goodwin was shoring up the defence which cut the strikers adrift... and Obika was well short of match fitness following months out.

Shaughnessy would be a great signing always likes the look of him but could see another team possibly offering him more cash.

I liked Jakubiak as well last season, hopefully he enjoyed his time and knows he needs to settle somewhere for a couple of years

Is Shaughnessy the next defensive target following any potential deal for Gogic gone?

Gogic was going to be playing midfield. Going by Goodwin's comments in the media today, if anything Mitchell Rose is our alternative option to Gogic.

I did hope that recruitment this close season would be a lot easier because of covid but it looks like we are going to have to be as patient as we are every year.

Yes, better players are now available and in theory we could get them but every other club is thinking the same thing.

I can see smaller squads with better players being the compromise.

PDE reporting we won't be signing Mitch Rose (but may still sign Shaughnessy).

St Mirren look set to make their third signing of the summer after fending off interest from Kilmarnock for former Aberdeen defender Joe Shaugnessy.

The 27-year-old former St Johnstone captain is close to linking up with fellow Irishman Jim Goodwin after being released by English League Two side Southend Utd this afternoon.

He would join ex-Motherwell full back Richard Tait and former Newcastle and Rangers goalkeeper Jak Alnwick in switching to Paisley ahead of next season.

Shaughnessy made over 50 appearances for the Dons, enjoying loan spells at Falkirk and Forfar Athletic as he continued his development.

He then became a stalwart for St Johnstone, turning out nearly 150 times for the Perth side and eventually taking over the captain's armband from Steven Anderson.

Last season he was part of the Southend United squad that was relegated from League One.

The Buddies are also understood to have missed out on Notts County midfielder Mitch Rose.

The midfielder considered an offer but has decided to turn that down for family reasons.

Still searching for that elusive sitting midfielder by the look of it. The Jim Goodwin role.
